BONNIE JONES / ANDREA NEUMANN

Green Just As I Could See

The structures here are thick and elastic, filled with variety, balancing long-held tones with skitterish ones. Overall, a staggering, sophisticated electroacoustic dialogue between Neumann, using the inside of a piano and a mixing board to speak a language of quick bursts and sheer atonality, and Jones on electronics, where delicate meditation meets the sound of surgery on dying robots.

Petit Pale

(Zarek - 05) Used CD $5.00

Arid, abstract, and cerebral, Schick’s live electronics and Neumann’s “inside-piano” converge somewhere between British free improv, German electronics-based improv, and electroacoustics. Occasional bursts of metallic sounds shaped like a human gesture, glitches, lo-fi electronics, and noise come together nicely.
